From the Paper:

"The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was known previously as Zaire. This area is situated right on the equator in Central Africa. The Pygmies were the first inhabitants of this area of the world and were individuals that resided on the outer edge of the forest located on the Equator as well as other part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Democratic Republic of the Congo is a "nominally centralized republic with a population of approximately 60 million." (U.S. Department of State, 2009) Following two wars, the first from 1996-1997 and the second from 1998 to 2003, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) organized its first elections which is "labeled as 'free, democratic and transparent' after more than 40 years." (Media Sustainability Index, 2006-2007)"
